First Look: Good News Brewing in O’Fallon, Mo.
The St. Louis craft beer boom continues, and it’s finally starting to take root out west. Case in point: Good News Brewing Co., which opened a brewpub in mid-July at 330 Sonderen St., in O’Fallon, Missouri.
As The Scoop reported in January, co-owners Dan Tripp, Josh Miller and Matt Fair announced they would turn their homebrewing hobby into a full-time business venture.
Good News brews 10 different beers from a crisp Citra Wheat IPA to an earthy Smoked Cherrywood Wheat. The brewery utilizes a one-barrel system, so what’s on tap changes up often and beers must be enjoyed onsite (no growlers for now). Several guest taps are also available, and customers can try all of the offerings by the pint, 10-ounce glass or 4-ounce sampler.
The Good News folks are tightly focused on their mission of brewing beer, so the food menu is limited to a handful of rotating personal pizzas cooked in brick oven on a sourdough crust made daily in-house. No appetizers, no kid’s menu and no takeout. “We’re a brewery that makes pizza,” Tripp said.
Good News seats 44 inside, including bar seats and communal tables, and the covered, pet-friendly patio boasts 11 picnic tables for al fresco dining and imbibing.
Good News is open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., Friday from 4 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Take a first look at what to expect from O’Fallon’s newest brewery:
